Effects of Material Inelasticity on the Design and Performance of Reinforced Concrete Link Beams Subjected to Gravity Loading

Masri, Ferris.

Abstract: For the determination of sectional design forces in concrete structures, it is nearly always assumed that structural concrete is a linear elastic material. However, structural concrete is highly inelastic, in which the stiffness may be only a small fraction of the uncracked elastic stiffness. Codes-of-Practice provide largely empirical provisions that focus on ensuring that structural me... read more
